Nana's visit

On March 14th, my mom came for a visit. She was here until March22nd. Here are some of the pictures she took while she was here.

On Saturday, March 15th, we went skiing for the last time this year.

This is Halee and Mommy on the chair lift.
Mom brought the girls some easter baskets and new shirts.

As I have mentioned before, Mondays are our busy days starting with gymnastics. Here is Halee doing some gymnastics.

She wanted a picture of me working on my house. Doors are still the current project! I had started the last 4 doors downstairs before she came. Here I am trying to finish them up. Yes, they are done and hanging. Only 8 more upstairs!

We have lakeside property! When you build a house, you have to raise your lot. There is currently a lot between us and another house, which is raised up also. So we have this permanent lake between us. Some ducks were trying it out!

Mom enjoyed finding things to take the girls picture with. Here is Halee in a crazy hat we made for one of Hannah's school projects.

One of the big things is to sleep with Nana while she is here. The each took turns each night. Halee has to have this Dora to sleep with. Mom says she sleeps like this all night long!

One night I put braids in Halee's hair. She wore the braids all the next day. But the day after that, this is the hair style she had!

Another day the girls asked Nana to paint their fingernails. Here is Hannah's.

And here are Halee's

Before the fingernail painting, the girls put on makeup. They have some play makeup I let them put on occasionally. Here is Hannah with her makeup on. Beautiful!

On Friday, we did an easter egg hunt.

On Friday evening, we went to Billings. Mom flew in and out of Billings because it was $400 cheaper! She flew out on Saturday morning. I took these pictures Saturday morning. Gramma has been working on this playhouse for the girls to play in at her house. She got this huge box (it had a lift recliner in it) and went to work.

The side view

Here is Halee inside of it. She was supposed to be getting dressed, but found playing way more fun!

That brings us to Easter, which I already posted! This past week has been fairly busy, but nothing out of the ordinary happened - just back to work and school and appointments! Have a great weekend. We are. Ed is helping Gage put siding on his house and we are staying home - at least for the morning. Hannah has a birthday party to go to this afternoon. But, staying comfy in jammies for a bit!!!

Wow. Looks and sounds like a wonderful visit.

I seemed to especially like the Easter baskets/brown shirts picture. Two SWEET/CUTE girls!

The girls are so cute! Y'all had a lot of fun. I can't believe you're still working on the house. You get more done than I ever could with little ones around, and you work too! You go girl!
